Show Listing

Saturday, May 31 is your final chance to jumpstart your writing career through AFF’s Screenplay & Teleplay Competition. In addition to being presented in the same room as Vince Gilligan, Jonathan Demme, Susan Sarandon, and Barry Josephson, last year’s advancing writers have signed with top companies like Madhouse Entertainment, named to the 2013 Black List, and last year’s Horror Screenplay Winner, Troy Miller, received an offer from Frank Darabont’s Darkwoods Productions to option his script.
“AFF has a stellar reputation as one of the premier screenwriting festivals in the world. If you do well at AFF, people will actually take notice. It’s a huge motivator.”
-Troy Miller, 2013 Darkwoods Productions Horror Screenplay Winner for The Hitch
This year’s Competition promises one-of-a-kind opportunities to have your script read by an array of influential decision makers through our sponsored award categories including the new Fade to Black Award presented by The Black List, AMC One-Hour Pilot Award, Darkwoods Productions Horror and Sci-Fi Awards, Enderby Entertainment Award, and the Drama Screenplay Award presented by the Writers Guild of America, East.
